Sales are great, but there are few sales that get people more excited than a Qatar Airways business class sale. Perhaps it’s the beds, the pampering, the dine on demand or the exciting destinations. Qatar Airways are back with some of their best recent offers to some of the best destination in Asia Pacific. Fancy a trip to Auckland, Singapore or Thailand? Here’s a great way to get there…

The very best deals are available from  Manchester, Sofia, Bulgaria and Helsinki, Finland. There are direct flights to any of these cities from many European cities, making these deals worthy of a side trip. Simply visit Qatar Airways website, enter some dates and play with the calendar to find the lowest fares and book. You’ll enjoy Al Mourjan lounge access in Doha along the way, which is a refreshing place to catch a shower, take a nap or pig out on delicious food and drinks. Just save some room for Thailand or Singapore, they’re two of the best street food places on earth.

  1. Hi, I would be very interested to know if you have any special Business Class deals for two adults, departing from Edinburgh, Manchester or London Heathrow to Melbourne. Provisional dates are, any time in November returning mid to late January 2019. We are very flexible with dates and times as we are retired. It is a special trip as it will be our Golden Anniversary.
    Look forward to reply.


    1. Hi Keith, I’m sorry but we aren’t a travel agent per se. We just highlight great deals and share them with how to go and book them. If your dates happened to work with available ones here, I’d suggest booking to Auckland from Manchester on this deal and taking a separate short flight between the two. We will of course highlight any similar offers, so be sure to check back on the page. Best of luck and congrats! What an occasion.

  2. I know that some of these routes ex-Europe to Doha still use the old 2-2-2 seats, and I want to avoid those. How do I know what seats are on which flights with great accuracy? I know that QSuites are still new and limited. The herringbone seats are awesome too and still beat J seats of many other airlines, however. Thanks!

  3. This is bullshit. The MAN-AKL available dates are on such narrow windows in Sep/Oct/Nov that one has to stay for one or two months; otherwise one has to combine a promo outbound with a standard return fare.

    1. Oh Joe, if only you didn’t call this post bullshit, you would’ve avoided the lesson you’re about to receive. Yesterday, when this rare flash sale was first offered and discovered by us, you could pick virtually any day. Naturally, the offer was wildly exciting when we launched it at about 9AM yesterday. It is a 48 hour offer, and all the people who pay close attention to the site and other sites booked yesterday. You – are 40 hours late to the party and have the gaul to call our hard work bullshit? Come on man. If you check this site daily, you could’ve cherry picked any day you like yesterday. Today – you’ll be lucky to book anything.
